Growing In Faith and Learning

'Growing in Faith and Learning' 'Life in all it's fullness' John 10:10

Welcome to St Leonard's CofE Primary School

Welcome to St. Leonard’s Church of England Primary School. We hope our website gives you a flavour of our vibrant, happy school and the achievements of our delightful children. We are a thriving church school in the picturesque village of Wigginton with a strong Christian ethos, growing in faith and learning. We passionately believe in developing the ‘whole child’ and ensure all children have the opportunity to reach their goals and shine in their own unique and wonderful way. Our kind, caring and dedicated team nurture, motivate and encourage our children to be confident and well-rounded members of their community. I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of St. Leonard’s, a place where children develop a passion for learning, feel good about themselves, are proud of their achievements and create lasting memories of friendship and connection in our school family. I warmly invite you to come and visit us at St. Leonard’s Mrs Kirsty Cullen, Headteacher.


At St Leonard’s our intent is to provide the children with an exciting, interactive curriculum. We aim to inspire them to reach their potential and to develop their confidence as mathematicians. Through our creative curriculum, we allow the children to explore and experience maths in different situations allowing them to apply their knowledge and problem solving skills to real problems.

Maths is taught on a daily basis. Teaching methods include discussions between teacher and pupil, discussions between pupils, practical work, group activities, individual work, practice of basic skills and routines and investigative work. Each lesson begins with a set amount of time for the children to complete their fix it tasks (Correcting any mistakes from the previous days lesson). This is then followed by a mental maths session or a set of core skills that the children have to complete. Our lesson structure is based upon the STAR approach (See it, Try it, Apply it, Reason) which helps the children to develop a deeper understanding of the objectives covered.


The lead teacher for Maths is Mr Postlethwaite.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me through the school office on 01827 213995 or email
